We stayed here as part of a weekend trip on the Saratoga and North Creek Railway. We got there at night, and it was a bit odd trying to figure out how to use the code for the room. (This confusion and lack of information may have been the fault of the travel agent who put the package together, not the hotel.) We thought we were supposed to use it to get into the common room, not directly into our individual rooms. Once we figured it out, everything was fine.
I like that they have so many room configurations, which is great for families. Beds were comfy, bathroom was large, with a good mirror. The bed frames are heavy log furniture, and the mattress is quite high, which could be difficult for someone with mobility issues, but it wasn't a problem for us. Our room had a little balcony off the back.
Although there was nobody around when we arrived, the next day we met the women who clean the rooms. They were very nice to talk to and we heard tales of how deep the snow gets there in the winter! Our return train was leaving after checkout, so we used the housephone to call the manager, who kindly arranged a late checkout, since our room wasn't booked for the next night.
If you stay here, be sure to go to the nearby restaurant, I think it's called Marsha's. Fabulous blueberry pancakes, light and fluffy with real blueberries.
The town is nice for strolling around. Cute shops, and if you walk a bit farther, nice views of the Hudson River.
